The rarest 1955 Ferrari 250 Europa GT will be put up for sale at the Gooding & Company online auction. For a unique sports car with a mileage of 33,500 kilometers, they plan to gain about $ 2.5 million.
The Berlinetta 250 Europa GT is the first Ferrari to receive the Gran Turismo badge. The design of the two-door sports car was invented by Giovanni Battista Farina. In total, the Italian firm built just over 40 road cars, which were first equipped with a three-liter Colombo V12 with a capacity of 220 horsepower. Together with the unit, a four-stage “mechanics” was installed. The sports coupe accelerated to “hundreds” in seven seconds. The maximum speed of the model was 230 kilometers per hour.
The sports car for sale received a rare combination of a matte black body and brown leather interior. In addition, at the request of the customer, “Ferrari” was equipped with an individual configuration of the dashboard. In the mid-60s of the last century, the owner of a unique Ferrari put the sports car in the garage and never used it again. Due to the long downtime, the body of the car is covered with rust in places, and the interior requires partial restoration.
This Ferrari 250 Europa GT has never been restored and for the first time in its history will be put up for auction, which will be held in May 2021. For the rarest two-door with a mileage of 33,500 kilometers, the seller plans to raise about $ 2.5 million.
In mid-January, a unique 1954 Ferrari 375 America coupe with panoramic rear glazing was put up for sale at RM Sotheby’s auction. For one of the two sports cars built in a similar body planned to gain 3.4 million dollars.
